    I interviewed online. The process took 4 weeks - interviewed at Sony in September 2010.

    I applied via online job posting and was contacted 2 weeks later for an initial phone interview by HR. Afterwards, I was invited for a personal interview at the location and had met the hiring manager. I was interviewed by a colleague of the hiring manager, followed by a manager in another department. It took a half day to go through all the interviews.

    Interview Details

    Typical behavioral interview process. They asked a lot of behavioral questions and what I have been involved in in school. For this position they want people who are outgoing and able to connect with people. They were really nice and friendly.

    I interviewed online. The process took 1 week - interviewed at Sony.

    Interview Details

    I had a phone interview with basic technical questions. My interviewer was kind of awkward and it seemed like he wasn't prepared to give the interview. We talked for about 30 minutes and it seemed like most answers I gave he checked on a sheet of paper.

    Interview Questions
    • I cant really remember the questions, but basic knowledge of hardware and software would be recommended.   Answer Question

    Computer Programmer Interview

    Anonymous Employee  in  San Diego, CA
    Anonymous Employee in San Diego, CA
    Application Details

    I interviewed online. The process took 1 week - interviewed at Sony in April 2013.

    Interview Details

    I submitted my resume online in the morning and they contacted me via email later on the same day asking to schedule a phone interview. I replied with my available times the next day after and they scheduled the phone interview within the next 3 or so business days. The phone interview was done with a manager (but with like 8 years of programming experience). Asked for me to talk about myself and then went into technical questions. He told me I would be contacted in a week either way. I was contacted a week later through the phone about how they went with another candidate. Disappointing since it was a job that I really wanted, but the other candidate had more experience so it was understandable. Very nice process and they were very cordial about it.
